    Hi! My family of four will be dining at CRT on Monday 9/12/16 @ 8 am. Hours for that day were just updated and now MK opens @ 8 am as well. How early should we arrive and will we be able to enter before everyone else?

    Hi Jessica,

    Thanks for coming by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. What better way to start your magical day than by dining at Cinderella's Royal Table. I highly recommend the French Toast. It is really amazing.

    To allow yourself enough time to walk through Magic Kingdom and get to Cinderella Castle in Fantasyland on time, I suggest you arrive to the front gates of the park about 30-45 minutes prior to your reservation. They typically have a separate line at one of the far ends marked for those with advanced dining reservations. You will check in with a cast member and give them your name. I would also have your reservation confirmation number handy, just in case they ask for it. They should let you in at that point so you do have enough time to walk through the park to the restaurant. With that much time, you shouldn't feel rushed and if you happen to have extra time, you could take advantage of photo opportunities in front of Cinderella Castle with a relatively empty park. Do not forget to account for travel time to Magic Kingdom, as well.

    Bon Appetit
